I am from India.
Can we use our personal PayPal account in udemy?
When I am trying to add Paypal ... even though I confirmed my email id in Paypal, I am getting a message like "This email address has not yet been confirmed. Please log in to your PayPal account and confirm your email address before continuing." Did anybody know how to resolve this?
Also, what type of tax document should we give? Should we approach any professionals for this?
Hi @MT1, yes, you can add your PayPal personal account as your payment method; however, if your account is not verified you will need to reach out to PayPal's support team here.
Our tax form tool provides instructors with the ability to select from a variety of different tax forms, including:
W-9 (used by U.S. individuals and entities to certify their Tax ID number)
W-8BEN (used by non-U.S. individuals to certify that they are a beneficial owner or a financial account-holder, and claim treaty benefits)
W-8BEN-E (used by non-U.S. entities to certify they’re a beneficial owner or a financial account-holder, and claim treaty benefits)
We also support the ability to submit certain less-common types of forms through our Support Help Center:
W-8ECI (used by non-U.S. individuals or entities to certify they’re a beneficial owner receiving U.S.-sourced income that is effectively connected with US trade or business)
W-8EXP (used by non-U.S. governments or other tax-exempt entities to certify they’re a beneficial owner or a financial account-holder)
W-8IMY (used by non-U.S. entities to certify they’re an intermediary or flow-through entity receiving payments on behalf of another person)
Choosing the right form will depend on where you live, whether you’re an individual or entity, and other specifics. Since Udemy is unable to provide tax advice, we recommend that you consult with a tax advisor to ensure you’re using the right form and entering information correctly.
